Is tangent to the poles.
Intersects the surface at two points only.
Passes through the center of the sphere.
Divided the sphere into four equal parts.
Passes through Greenwich Village, New York.
Is given in nature.
Connects the North and South poles.
Is parallel to the equator.
Degrees of longitude range from 0° to 360°.
Meridians decrease in length away from the International Date Line.
Distance between adjacent degrees of longitude increases away from the equator.
It is the angular distance east or west of the prime meridian.
North and South poles.
A curved surface cannot be represented on a flat surface without distortion.
Parallels and meridians never cross at right angles on a globe.
The grid system is two-dimensional but the earth is three-dimensional.
A sphere is a developable surface.
Latitude is a measure of distance and of the equator.
Latitude lines are always parallel to each other on a globe.
Latitude varies from 0° to 180°.
On a globe, lines of latitude intersect parallels of longitude at right angles.
Sense the heat emitted by objects on earth.
Can operate only in the daytime.
Have been used to detect water pollution.
Do not use photographic film.
All meridians are one-half the length of the equator.
Parallels increase in length as one nears the poles.
Meridians and parallels intersect at right angles.
The scale on the surface of the globe is the same in every direction.

The conic projection.
Goode's Homolosine projection.
The Mercator projection.
They are used by engineers, regional planners, and land use analysts.
The contour line is the principal device used to indicate elevation.
They portray the terrain rather than features people have added to the natural landscape.
Aerial photography is employed to speed up the production process.
Shows true distance in all directions from one or two central points.
Has parallels and meridians intersecting at right angles.
Shows true directions from a single point to all other points.
Is almost always conformal.
Give a general idea of the relative locations of major features.
Shows significantly less detail than do larger scale maps.
Typically smooth out such features as coastlines and rivers.
Permit the accurate measurement of major features.
Can be detected by remote sensing.
Connect points of equal elevation above sea level.
Aren't useful for depicting mountainous regions.
Are less accurate than shaded relief in depicting terrain.
